Somehow I managed to smash the glass door of my oven. No grilling or baking for the next few days then.

We bought a couple of new stools to go at the breakfast bar in the kitchen. They are the red colour you can see reflected in the base.

Flying over the Isle of Wight again, this time The Needles, although the Needles themselves and the lighthouse are under the clouds.

Well, I've eked out this holiday as long as I could, but now its time to come back home, waiting to board at the airport.


I dont think they have any red paint in Guernsey, all the letterboxes were blue, and the phoneboxes (not photographed) were yellow!

This, believe it or not, is the reflecting mirror from a German WWII searchlight.
The Channel Islands were the only part of the United Kingdom to be occupied by the Nazis during the Second World War. 
While we were in (on?) Guernsey we paid a visit to the German Occupation Museum. Since Guernsey is such a small Island, and the Germans were there for some 5 years (and left an awful lot of stuff behind when they left), there is an enormous amount to see.
The Museum doesn't have its own website, but it does have a review page which you can read here.
Well worth a visit if you ever find yourself in that neck of the woods.


Taking a rest, during our 5 mile cliff-top walk.
